Random Monday Morning Thought | Third Person Questions.
I am not sure if there is anything more annoying than when someone asks a question in the third person and proceeds to answer it. For instance:
Do I think I am extraordinarily kick ass at Chutes and Ladders? Yes I do.
I don't know what makes people think they can dictate both sides of a conversation. What is more irritating is that the people who utilize this technique also tend to weave a "guy" or "bud" or "fella" into these already painful conversations. And furthermore, they always ask questions that they know the answer to. You never hear someone ask:
If I were to kick ass at Chutes and Ladders in a forest in Northern Quebec and everyone around was looking at the Sasquatch that was driving off in our Honda Element while wearing a Nintendo Powerglove and smoking a pack of Parliaments, did I actually kick ass?
I could probably issue an exception for third person questions that actually yield thought provoking answers. However for the rest, I give one use as a warning, all others will receive a neck punch. You are all on notice.
